Horseshoe Bend Campground

Area Status: Closed

Sheltered from traffic noise on Highway 138, Horseshoe Bend is situated on a bench adjacent to the Wild and Scenic North Umpqua River. An open stand of old-growth Douglas Fir and sugar pine creates privacy among the campsites and shelters Horseshoe Bend from traffic noise on Highway 138. The North Umpqua Trail #1414.04 Calf Segment is in close proximity to this campground, which also features a boat launch and group reservation facilities. Horseshoe Bend is popular with anglers, as well as whitewater adventures running some of the Wild and Scenic North Umpqua River's most exhilarating descents.
